Why I really hate organized religion......

From TPM

Steven Anderson, the Arizona pastor who says he's praying for President Obama's death has now thrown in some helpful specificity. He wants him to get brain cancer like Sen. Kennedy. Also of note, Chris Broughton, Anderson's parishioner, who brought the assault rifle to the Obama event a few weeks ago now says he's praying for Obama's death too and is now hedging on whether he's suggesting that someone take matters into their own hands and end the president's life.

Links for a Monday.......

Missouri School confuses "Evolution" as a religion:

School band creates a t-shirt depicting evolution (humorous) - is ordered by superintendent to turn them in because "district is required by law to remain neutral on religion"

What would Jesus Do?
Jesus would....apparently and according to the "Evangelicals" -torture more....

Read Andrew Sullivan:

"Indeed, much of the American people, especially evangelical Christians, expect less in terms of human rights from their own government than Iranians do of theirs'. In fact, American evangelicals are much more pro-torture in this respect than many Iranian Muslims."

10 Awesome Things that would happen if Health Care Passes
1: The First Thing That Will Happen Is Absolutely Nothing
If you have a decent health plan through your job, nothing will change for you in terms of your insurance.

2. New Protections for Consumers
No denial for pre-existing conditions
No cancellation of coverage in the middle of say.....cancer treatment...
3. Medical Bankruptcies Would Plummet
60% of all personal bankruptcies are caused by Medical costs

4. People Who Could Never Get Decent Coverage Will Finally Be Able To

5. (Almost) Everyone Gets Covered

6. Those Who Can't Afford the Premiums Will Get Help Paying

7. No Free Lunch for Businesses
Hello Walmart? Currently, large employers that rely on low-skilled workforces usually offer little or no health coverage, and much of these workers' health care is already subsidized by taxpayers in the form of Medicaid and Medicare payments

8. More Low-Income Workers Eligible for Medicaid

9. Some Things Will Change, but You'll Never Notice

10. Over Time, the System Will Become Healthier

Boycott Whole Foods! And Glenn Beck! And Walmart! and ...well lots of people.....

Fortunately - there ARE no Whole Foods near me and I am too cheap to shop there - so Boycott 'em......

Why? Because their CEO is spouting nonsense about healthcare plans and he is clearly an idiot......(I've stopped being nice....)

I worry if Trader Joe's CEO says something stupid - because then I really would be up a tree.

OK - Glenn Beck is an ASS who claims that Obama hates whitey....or some such boycott him and anyone who advertises on his show

Walmart is just stupid...boycott them because they want you to buy really cheap shit from China so that you can afford to live at minimum wage in East Jesus Alabama and have no health care and no education and watch Fucking Fox News all day.....boycott them.....damn.....

And Boycott Fricking Miley Cyrus because she is a slut - POLE dancing on the Teen Choice awards. So what DOES the religious right say about his? Not a GOD DAMNED thing because they are too busy worrying that two gay men might get married. OR that Obama is *gasp* "African".....

Oh yeah....and WTF is with old white people who are ON Medicare for fucks sake who then have the temerity to accuse Obama of being "socialist" (code for the "n-word" ) and screaming that they don't want death panels. WTF?

As if private insurance doesn't ration care? hell0? stupid people? out there in Red State Jesus Land? Are you really that stupid? are so stupid.

Am I ranting? Hell yes I am ranting. Armed people showing up at rallies where Obama is? Signs that say "go back to Kenya"? Hello? Racist much? Racist a LOT?! This is HATE CRIME stuff people.....wake up.....the hate and fear is absolutely out of control.

This country is better than that.
